FCC: Nokia Wireless Music Receiver MD-20W

| August 17, 2011 | 16 Replies

After trawling through some FCC pages, I came across a new device that was passed just today. It is a Wireless Music Receiver known as MD-20W. This was something revealed at Nokia Connection in Singapore earlier this year. It operates on Bluetooth via the 2.4 gHz range, and, like Play 360, supports NFC. Tipped to give Apple Airplay a run for its money, this audio device can play music from your phone to your stereo. It boasts an indoor range of 30 metres while (apparently) being able to be used up to 100 metres outdoors.

To me, the FCC image and the specs I’ve read about sound a lot like another NFC-enabled music receiver, the MD-310. The MD-310 specs are as follows, as listed on the Nokia Site.

Previously announced Nokia MD-310

Wireless entertainment

  • Play music wirelessly from your device on your home entertainment system through a stereo Bluetooth connection.
  • Control tracks from your phone without any wires.
  • With a range of up to 100 m, you can move freely about your home as you enjoy your music.

High-quality audio

  • Enjoy your tracks in crisp CD-quality sound with aptX™ digital audio technology.
  • Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) support ensures high-quality stereo streaming through Bluetooth.
  • Music streamed from the internet sounds clean and clear – without the distortion you might expect.

Easy to install and use

  • Installation is easy – just plug the audio cable into your home stereo jack.
  • Connect to your compatible Bluetooth device with one press of a button.
  • Or tap your NFC-enabled phone to the receiver to pair instantly.
  • When not in use, conveniently store the cable by winding it around the spool.

Universally compatibility

  • Compatible with a wide range of phones, music players, laptops, netbooks and computers.
  • Connect to any stereo system with a standard 3.5 mm audio jack.
  • Use the included RCA adapter for extended compatibility

Just to clarify, the above information and the above image is for the already available MD-310.

    This is the difference between Nokia nad let’s say Apple.

    Apple pushes for their “apple” connector for manufacturers to use in their equipment. That for me for example is a dealbreaker as I refuse to pay extra for a feature that I probably never use and which is compatible with only one manufacturers devices.

    This device on the other hand is compatible with all BT devices that support the full standard (A2DP) and can connect to homestereo, car stereo etc. without difficulties making every stereo etc. “phone” connected. I hope the price isn’t too bad though…

      I agree wholeheartedly. You left out the fact that Apple will claim it is the 1st and only one capable of such a thing.

    It’s been announced quite a while ago.

    Check out:

    • the specs and the picture at the bottom of the page is of the MD-310 which was announced a while ago, the MD-20W which just passed FCC is different!

    I suppose it “doesn’t support iphone”.

    AT least my friends iphone didn’t support a standards compliant headset a2dp…

    • it will…via normal Bluetooth.

      NFC is there just to make connection simpler and quicker, it doesn’t stop non-NFC enabled devices from connecting to it.
